I have made an account to leave my opinion on your move to get involved in politics PlayTonic. You really messed up with your PR staff, and you really shouldn't have removed content as a result of differing opinions when you claim to support EVERY type of diversity. I'm sorry that you've gone ahead and made your motto an absolute, but that's on you. So let's say that JonTron is somehow a ""racist"" for what he said on a stream, that had nothing to do with your game mind you, and stack up how much that affects the "comfortable" environment you're trying to set with your game if you had not removed his voice role.
"Man this game is great, oh hey a new NPC!"
Random garble noises voiced by Jontron.
"Oh hey that sounds like funny internet guy."
"Hah, what a weird voice."
Notice how I didn't include your perceived notion that residents from NeoGaff backed your game, because they didn't. Your core audience are people that just want the game, no politics involved whatsoever. Do you want to know why your decision WILL affect the player's perspective of the game? Now you've created unnecessary bitterness that wouldn't have been present if you had either left Jon's voice in the game or at the least refunded all the "biggots" your terrible PR team has censored, mocked and insulted on twitter, as well as refused any explanation on the matter other than, "Thanks for funding the game, we don't care." I'm utterly disgusted to see the remnants of the old RARE subject themselves to caving under such a tiny bit of pressure when these are the same people that worked on CONKER'S BAD FUR DAY!
The advancement of Social Media is going to be the end to good game development, and it's all thanks to weak companies like you Platonic who can't just release a statement saying that JonTron's opinions do not represent you as a company, or you could've done what a good company does...
My perspective of you as a company is clear, and if I do purchase the game it will be a used copy. Sad to see you lose so many sales after you poured your hard work and effort in over some controversy and politics you could've easily ignored.
P.S. Before someone tells me, yes I'm aware that Playtonic is within their right to remove JonTron's voice from the game. Just like I'm within my right as a customer to not support shady business practices. Stop pointing out the obvious and take a minute to actually understand that not every single person who has a differing opinion is evil or racist. It's extremely hypocritical when everyone is aware that they're sharing OPINIONS. I dare you to try and argue mine.https://youtu.be/sRNDnR9Za4M
